Heinz Field Student Section

In order to build a loyal fan base within the student body, the athletic director of the late 1990's decided to revamp the Pitt Stadium student section. This was known as the "12th man" concept to grow a sense of belonging between the students and their school's athletic teams. The Pitt Stadium was completely repainted with a large "12" over the student section and a large inflatable jersey with the number 12 placed under it.

When the Pitt Panthers football team moved over to the Heinz Field, the Pittsburgh athletic department once again needed to come up with a gimmick to keep their fans coming back. After a few failed rebranding ideas, the Panther Pitt was born in 2003. A few years later, the Panther Pitt and the student government came up with the idea of "Code Blue" where all Pitt students where a blue t-shirt to every home game in order to match their beloved Pitt Panthers football team.
